The abrupt temperature changes that are exposed in the latter period caused many people to fight colds. Irritations of the nose and throat, headache and unpleasant feelings, make us reach into the solutions that are found in pharmacies until many are opting for a speedy recovery with antibiotics.
But this kind of treatment causes a complete imbalance in the body as the common cold is caused by viruses, not bacteria, and the road to recovery should eliminate drugs and enable body healing naturally.
Plenty of fruit and vegetables
Viruses are the most common cause of colds, but trying to treat them with antibiotics is completely wrong because this medication affects them. The best way to fight the common cold is to prevent infection, and it will end up boosting the immune system and with the help of plenty of fruits, vegetables and spices that contain natural forms of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.
A high amount of vitamin C is necessary at the time when viruses are raging and you can find vitamin C in almost all types of fruits and vegetables. It is important to completely clear your diet from oily foods and eat only meals that have been prepared with minimal thermal processing.
A rest in the period of colds is necessary. If you have a strong cough and you are not relaxing enough, the symptoms can increase in the next days and you wouldn’t be able to get out of bed. Therefore, dispose of all obligations and allow yourself two days of complete rest.
Doubled fluid intake
Fluid, teas and water, during colds and viruses must be doubled than usual. The water defends the body against viruses by maintaining cells clean and optimizing all of their features.
Under increased fluid intake we do not only mean the ordinary water, but the tea and chicken soup with the amino acid cysteine containing – the famous savior in situations when our bodies deteriorate before the virus. For even better effect, in the chicken soup add a little fresh garlic and ginger.
Proper nose blowing
Disposal of accumulated mucus from the nose is necessary in the treatment of the common cold, but it should not be aggressive. Namely, when strongly blowing the mucus, part of it can go in the ear canal and cause inflammation of the ears.
Natural respiratory virus eliminator
Salt water helps remove viruses from the nose, and you can prepare one yourself as follows: boil 2 ounces of water and allow it to cool, and then add 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt and an equal amount of baking soda.
Give it a good mix and insert it with a dripper in each nostril separately and allow it to sit there for a while. Repeat at least three times a day.
